Please only take lottery into account and not other type of gambling. Making money means that in the entire span you have been playing lottery, you got more money from the lottery than the money you have spent on the lottery.

    assuming you are talking about 5-ball games and lotto, i've won a tier 2 lottery prize (around 2200 dollars) after 3 months of playing, yes, but by never winning anymore tier 2 or major prizes not really :( Still at around 900 profit from the lottery though after taxes xD and this is just sparingly play, not playing every single drawing (i.e. only playing when the jackpot is high)

              If people are not picking "no" they're lying a bit unless they have hit a nice jackpot..The lottery wasen't made up for everyone to win or there bwould be no lottery..With that said "good luck"..

                                                                        Pure luck

                      I don't really keep track of what I spend on the pick 3. But I do on what I win. I saved all my losing tickets for the year awhile back, out of curiosity to see what I spent. So based on that, in the 6 years I've been playing I would have to say I'm ahead. But I want to do a lot better. And I will.

                      The numbers will tell you what numbers to play. Pay attention to the numbers.

                      Don't just think outside the box, crush it.

                        NO.

                        I should have stopped playing long ago then.....

                        But the fact is, I enjoy it! I love the feeling of.....buying those tickets and......possibly.......winning....a.........Jackpot......... Hyper Hurray!
